Tracking the Pre-Inauguration Photosynth Buzz

The buzz is building around the idea of using Photosynth to
capture events and real world environments and the Inauguration will be a huge
moment for Obama and his family, our country, the world… and for Photosynth.  We’re expecting a big surge of synths being
created to capture this historic event, but we’re already seeing some great
pre-inauguration synths too.

What the Blogs and Tweets Are Saying

Overall it looks like Photosynth is being really well
received.  This is an exciting moment for
our small team.  We’ll be working super
hard in the coming week to make sure all the inauguration synths are created
and shared as best possible.
